Chinese fighter jets have chased the US and Japanese military aircraft inside China’s newly declared Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) in the East China Sea.
Chinese defense authorities say they sent more fighter jets to the newly-declared air defense zone in the East China Sea on Friday

This is the second day Beijing is deploying its aircraft to the controversial zone.

The Chinese air force described the mission as a defensive measure in line with international law. Beijing also says the country's air force will remain on high alert and take measures to deal with all air threats to protect China’s national security.









The Chinese Air Force spokesman, Col. Shen Jinke, said Chinese warplanes had been scrambled to identify US surveillance aircraft and several Japanese planes crossing through the zone.

Last week, the country announced that foreign aircraft passing through the airspace, including passenger planes, will have to identify themselves to Chinese authorities.
